Worship fun, feasting, fantasy and all things ginger in this unique theatrical dining experience. A collaboration with the pop-up restaurant group Gingerline, we devised a performance, lighting and sound design to accompany a beautifully designed 5 course meal experience – all to mark guests being ordained into the secret order of gingers.
Feasting on divine delights, guests confessed their darkest secrets via a mobile confessional as priestesses and parishioners supped and danced amongst the pews in a state of riotus rapture, all set in a church at a secret location.
The Secret Order of Gingers was produced by Gingerline in Stoke Newington in 2012.
Grab your passport and check-in at the entrance of a night out to remember. In flight entertainment comes to life in this theatrical club night extravaganza created by Sibling Rivalry, complete with air hostesses, a bar set in a london underground train and travel inspired experiences.
We created a one-on-one experience set in a lost property office. Run by two middle-aged sisters Edna and Maureen, whose lives revolve around wordsearch contests, Tom Selleck and murder magazine, audience’s lost souls are relocated to a new place as individual audience members are whisked through an obscure customer service encounter.
The trip was produced by Sibling Rivalry in Islington Metalworks in 2010.
Empire Theatre History
Set in the dressing rooms of Liverpool’s infamous theatre, History of the Empire Theatre were mini-performances that revived the stories of the most obscure characters from the venue’s history, featuring lost dogs, tangled clothing, escaped puppets and cycling comedians.
The series of 4 performances portrayed the peculiar events gone wrong 10 minutes before the 'show' opens.
The event was part of the Opening Ceremony for Liverpool – European Capital of Culture 2008 set in the Empire Theatre.
Storm in a Teacup
Playing true to its location, this performance created for the artsdepot’s 5th birthday sees the story emerging from a wooden storage box, shipped and left in the building’s foyer space.
With a thunderclap the box collapses, revealing a couple trapped inside by the rain that pours outside the windows. Riddled with boredom they sit numbly drinking tea, until a stirring in their cups reveals a way to escape…
Following the performance, Parrot in the Tank were announced the Artistic Associates of artsdepot as of 2009.
Long Way Down
Set in the underground Hub in The Roundhouse basement floor, Long Way Down transports its audience into a bunker of archived documents and materials, where a worker raises his head from his desk one day to discover his records have disappeared.
As he gradually begins to evaporate, the audience are invited to share his last moments of existence, following his final movements as he desperately trawls through corridors littered with papered traces of the human race.
Long Way Down was performed at the Roundhouse, London as part of The Accidental Festival 2009 was the second one in Parrot's series of Excursions, a one-on-one experience that guides the audience member via a camcorder as it escapes into a world of its own.
The Sea And Me
The Sea and me charts the stories of the man made of stone who wanders the corridors of the artsdepot once the last light switch is flicked. He dreams of the sea, conjuring images and sounds to comfort himself whilst pacing through the abandoned building at night, peering at the moon in the hope that one day he might return.
The Sea and Me was performed at the artsdepot as part of the Untapped Festival 2009 and was the first one in Parrot's series of Excursions, a one-on-one experience that guides the audience member via a camcorder as it escapes into a world of its own.
